WHAT IS A SOC?
A Security Operation Centre (SOC) is a joint function within an organization that uses people, procedures, and technology to continually monitor and enhance an organization’s security posture while preventing, detecting, analyzing, and responding to cybersecurity incidents.
A security operations center (SOC) or cybersecurity operations center (CSOC) is equipped with various security technologies utilized by the individuals who work there to help prevent, detect, and respond to cyber threats. Any organization wanting to improve its cyber maturity should make developing a SOC capability a top priority. The SOC team’s goal is to detect, analyze, and respond to cybersecurity incidents using a combination of technology solutions and a robust set of processes. Security operations centers are typically staffed with security analysts and engineers, and managers who oversee security operations.
• WHY OPT MANAGED SECURITY SERVICE?
A Managed SOC, also known as SOC as a Service, is a subscription-based offering whereby small and large companies outsource threat detection and incident response.
The Managed SOC (security operation center) is a managed IT security service that uses the Threat Monitoring Platform to detect malicious and suspicious activities. The three key attack vectors are Endpoint | Network | Cloud.
A managed IT security service can offer 24×7 security monitoring without requiring organizations to make a significant investment in security software, hardware, employee training, and other infrastructure. The following are some of the critical responsibilities of a Managed SOC:
• Management and deployment of technology
• Incident avoidance
• Monitoring of security events
• Investigation and analysis of alerts
• Management of threat intelligence
• Threat remediation
With a SOC monitoring an IT environment, organizations will have more incredible speed in identifying attacks and remedying them before it causes more damages. A SOC also helps you meet regulatory requirements requiring security monitoring, vulnerability management, or an incident response function.
Our SOC technology monitors network traffic, endpoints, logs, security events, etc., so that our analysts can use this information to identify vulnerabilities and prevent breaches. When suspicious activity is detected, your platform should create an alert, indicating further investigation is required.
